Seven Ways We Lie
Seven Ways We Lie by Riley Redgate
Publisher/Year: March 8th 2016 Amulet Books
Source/Format: e-arc | NetGalley
(Thanks NetGalley/Amulet Books!)
Rating: 4 stars out of 5

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affects my opinion.

I really enjoyed this book, but I had my issues with it. When I read it would have 7 POV's, I was wary, and unfortunately I was right to be. It was my main problem with the book, but I just found it so hard to keep up with who was who and what their relationships were with everyone. I LOVED how diverse each of the main characters, and the amount of representation that was presented made me fall in love with Redgate. I will be looking out for her stuff in the future.

The Dead HouseThe Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich
Publisher/Year: August 6th 2015 Orion Children's
Source/Format: e-arc | NetGalley
(Thanks NetGalley/Orion Children's!)
Rating: 3 stars out of 5

I have to admit that part of the reason why my rating for this book is what it is is due to the fact that it genuinely scared me at times, and I don't enjoy that. I realise that I knew what I was getting into, but it didn't make for an enjoyable reading experience. I really liked the general premise, of the split personality and the controlling natures, but it wasn't anything terribly special. If you are a big fan of horror, I'd say go for it but otherwise be prepared to be creeped out.

Flawed (Flawed, #1)
Flawed by Cecelia Ahern
Publisher/Year: March 24th 2016 HarperCollins Children's

(Thanks NetGalley/HarperCollins!)
Rating: 3 stars out of 5

Ahern's name has been around as an author for so long now that when I saw she was releasing her first YA book, I knew I had to at least give it a go. I liked the world this was set in, with the flawed people and their branding but it wasn't exceptionally different to anything I haven't read before. There wasn't anything special about Celestine: she's just your average perfect human being who bucks societies norm and tries to save someone. Good, but not great.
